The Boatshed La Perouse




A great spot to grab fish and chips, The Boatshed at La Perouse stands tall over Frenchman’s Bay at La Perouse, with stellar views of the bay.

Inside, the newly refurbished, beautiful nautical theme is accentuated with exposed woods, copper and blue and white tiles but in our opinion, the main appeal is the stunning wooden deck which floats above the beach, with its glass balustrade, large communal tables and retractable roof. Best viewed with a plate of prawns and a cold glass of rosé in hand.

That being said, if you have an energetic toddler who just won’t cooperate, grab some takeaway and sit in the sand. It’s just as good.

A note on Frenchman’s Bay 

From the beach there are views over Botany Bay to the west and Botany Bay National Park to the south. This westerly outlook gives Frenchman’s Bay a unique orientation amongst Sydney beaches.

Overall, the beach is a popular summer beach owing to its easy access and family-friendly nature however the beach is not patrolled by Lifeguards or lifesavers.

Dogs, alcohol and glass bottles are not permitted on the beach area.  It is also recommended that as a general precaution to avoid swimming during and for 24-hours after heavy rain. Stormwater runoff from surrounding streets drain to the beach which may pollute the water.

In the park area is there a public toilet block available but if you are a patron of the restaurant there are facilities there as well.

Delicious fish and chips but was so packed when we went had to get takeaway and go sit on the beach. It wasn’t the original plan but my toddler preferred it.
